Introducing Cloud Hosting from HostGator


Here at HostGator, the word “unlimited” just expanded in scope. In keeping with our goal to always provide the best service and products in the industry, it is with great pleasure that we now introduce our new cloud hosting platform.

We are able to offer our customers increased reliability, scalability and performance while still giving them full access to the cPanel features they know and love, in the cloud! Built on pooled compute and storage resources with features that allow us to respond quickly and easily to any hardware issues that arise, our cloud platform also includes a fully-redundant storage array with three copies of your data mirrored to ensure optimum data integrity.

Our new cloud platform natively integrates automatic caching of static content to ensure lightning-fast page load speeds. If more compute resources are needed to serve up the dynamic content, a click of a button can scale up to 8 cores and 8GB RAM via the Server Performance Dashboard. This is up to 4x more than what some competitors offers.

In addition, customers now have access to an Intuitive Performance Dashboard which provides real time metrics on page download speed, server uptime, visitor information, and resource utilization.

 

Enjoy easy resource scaling with the click of a button:

 

Our new cloud packages include all of the features of our classic Baby, Hatchling and Business plans, with the additional benefits outlined above. Transferring from Shared to Cloud is a snap; simply contact our team to assist with the transfer after the order is purchased.
